Agreed. If staying in Savannah and want some beach time, go to Tybee. Archived Message

Closer & had lower key vibe. |
As mentioned in a different post, we spend a week on Tybee about 10 years ago. Also spend a week in Hilton Head ~5 years ago.
Most of the beaches on Hilton Head are private.
If you can get a place in the middle of the historic district, you should be fine. But the cheaper hotels are mostly on the fringes, which can be a bit of a hike, but still not too remote.
We stayed at the Omni in Hilton head 8 or so years ago which was awesome, but we got a crazy good deal on shoulder season. We looked a few other times and it was really pricy.
Definitely recommend avoiding the high summer—it can get nasty hot there which makes Savannah a lot less pleasant.

Just a quick 2.5 day trip.
Want to get some history in Savanah without a huge amount of walking (some walking okay)
